March 2021 Report

Caring baboons.
Caring baboons.

Across South Africa baboons are coming into conflict with human as landuse is intesified. Whether it is agriculture, urban development or even tourism, humans are taking more space, not managing their waste efficiently and baboons are adapting to easy food rewards in human occupied spaces.

Baboon Matters has been lobbying for changes to the way in which baboons are managed and are pleased to note that after two meetings with the City of Cape Town Mayor and letters to Minister Bredell, both the City of Cape Town and province have agreed to review and revise the current management guidelines.

The City of Cape Town is in the process of conducting an internal review of their mandates and will soon open the process to public participation.  We are waiting feedback from an initial meeting with provincial enivironmental departments (held in November 2020) and hope that the workshop process gets underway within the first half of the year.

Baboon Matters liaises closely with a range of associated welfare groups and NGO's and together we will continue to explore all avenues so that the much needed change is found through a collective compromise document that we can all buy into and accept.

Baboons have been considered to be a species "of least concern" for too long now and it is through our on going and collective efforts that we will ensure better protection and management for our intelligent and engaging primate neighbours.

Thank you for supporting our efforts and we look forward to your on-going support as we make change for baboons.
